Help with raising sprinkler head?

Hello All,

Can anyone tell me how to raise a sprikler head 1-2" in an exisitng installation? One station at the end of our driveway is too low in the ground, and it eventually stops turning because of dirt clogging the head. I believe the heads are PPG if this helps. Thanks.

If you want to raise sprnkler heads (PGP) you will have to dig down to the pipe, and either lift the line and put drt underneath or add a bigger nipple (piece of pipe connecting sprinkler to fitting, you can find them eaisly at sprinkler warehouse. com or your local hardware store. Those are really the only two options you have

Let me know what you think

Or a swing joint with a small nipple so you don't relocate the head.

Thanks for the info. One last question. Is the supply line to the sprinkler head flexible or solid type PVC?

Hey,
Depending on when it was instaleld, who installed it, where you live, it can depend. The only way to find out is to actually dig up the sprinkler head, and look at the pipe.
